Woodgrain Coffee Buzz

Hi friends! It's a brand new month of Mojo Monday and that means this week is contest week.  Play along for your chance to win some Verve of your very own.  We have a new release coming up on the 20th of this month and a huge restocking order around that time as well, so there should be lots of new goodies to choose from.

I drew the sketch from the card I posted last week for the Card Concept challenge.  I loved the way it flowed and thought it would be fun to give it another go.  For today's card I pulled out a bag of pre-stamped items that never made it onto cards and decided to play only with scraps.

The bees from The Buzz had already been embossed in gold on so saffron and cut with the coordinating The Buzz Die Set.  The honeycomb in the background had been stamped in delightful dijon on the same color paper and also cut with The Buzz Die Set.  I love the what's the buzz sentiment and embossed it on a scrap of woodgrain paper, then decided it totally needed some coffee.

So I embossed the cup from the Coffee set in gold on a scrap of paper, then watercolored with Gansai Tambai markers and fussy cut because I couldn't find my die set.  I added a Flourished Trim die cut from crackled gold paper, then decided the cup needed some steam, so embossed the steam stamp in gold on vellum and then tucked behind.  I layered everything together and thought it needed something else, so found a little vintage circle tag that had been stamped on one side and rejected.  So I embossed the little bee in gold, accented his wings with a white gel pen, and added it to my collage of elements.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  14. Isn't it a neat feeling when a card comes together out of formerly rejected pieces?-- and this turned out so awesome! The gold accents plus the woodgrain and honeybee warmth is a winning combo!
